I'm a family coach and I help parents & kids feel more purposeful & connected.
Maybe your kids aren’t listening and your time together is stressful (everything’s a struggle!) or you just really want to instill some new family habits and routines.
As a parent your instincts are telling you what’s right for your family – but you’re overwhelmed with all the advice out there, second guessing your daily decisions, maybe even feeling like you’re losing your cool more than you’d like.
THERE’S NO ONE RIGHT WAY
TO PARENT. THIS IS FEELING BETTER
WITH YOURSELF & YOUR KIDS!
Whether you’ve got toddlers or teens, I want to help you learn to trust your own parenting style, with less stress and more confidence – while learning to listen, communicate and relate with your kids.
I completed my Masters in Education with a specialization in Montessori education from Loyola College in Maryland.
I have both AMI Toddler (birth to 3 years of age) and AMI Primary (3-6 years of age) diplomas from The Montessori Institute of San Diego.
I completed my undergrad education at the University of Michigan. Go Blue!
I have worked in Toddler classrooms (18 months-3 years), Primary classrooms (3-6 years) and in Administration running a Montessori school.
I love working with children and honestly feel like we get each other (maybe I’m still a kid at heart).
I was once called a “baby whisperer” on a 5-hour plane ride.
I’m big into wellness and believe that diet, environment and level of stress are super important factors in how we feel daily.
I was a Montessori child until the 3rd grade.
"My husband and I reached out to Sandra at a time when we felt we were struggling with our teenagers. We were disagreeing and arguing with the kids frequently and also struggled to get them to help around the house. It really felt like the “teenage years” were in full swing. At our initial meeting, we felt so comfortable with Sandra. We were able to open up to her immediately. She never made us feel badly about our past choices and decisions. On the contrary, she made us feel understood and validated. Even when my husband and I didn’t agree on an issue, Sandra made it okay. She helped us understand how to interact with our kids in a more positive way. Through our sessions, I could feel I was becoming more patient with our kids. My favorite part of the process was when Sandra worked with our kids in our home. I could see that they responded well to the way she spoke to them and trusted them with responsibility. When my children were given the opportunity to excel, they did. I can’t tell you how much working with Ms. Sandra has changed the life of my family and how much I have learned from this experience. Thank you, Ms. Sandra!"

KIDS ARE PEOPLE, TOO. I want everyone to feel part of your purposeful family.
I also want to show you ways to help your kids feel more involved and important. Let’s get them more engaged in everything from the kitchen at mealtime, to spending time together as a family in work and play.
I want to give you real everyday changes you can make with one-on-one guidance that helps you trust yourself more and redefine your relationship with your kids – in a way that works for the whole family.
I’M HERE TO HELP YOU FEEL MORE HAPPY & WHOLE TOGETHER – TO KEEP IN THE SUNSHINE!
